If you are looking to improve your chances of Canada’s visa application, begin improving your Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores.
Before talking about how to improve the CRS score, we must know what it is.
Comprehensive Ranking System or CRS is a method that Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) uses to assess your Express Entry draw pool’s rank amongst other candidates.
Express Entry profile is evaluated based on the following criteria:
How to improve your CRS score:
Improve your language test scores by learning a second language or retake your original first language test. The highest Canadian Language Benchmark is 9, so any score below nine means you have room for improvement. You can add 22 points if you have a second language skill (great time to learn a language you’ve wanted to know for so long!).
Acquire a 3+ year work experience that will help you receive more points. This will allow you to acquire temporary permits for Canadian visa holders and people applying from outside Canada. It’ll further help you to claim more CRS points for a Canadian work experience.
Get a Provincial Nomination (PN). As the maximum CRS score is 1200, by having a PN worth 600 CRS points, you will already be halfway through!
Acquire additional educational course certifications. Certifications will essentially help you get high CRS scores, human capital points, and skill transferability points.
Get a job offer in Canada. Having a job offer will not only to your score but make landings easier for you. Make sure you fulfill the criteria to claim your CRS points.
Hire a recruiter to help you find work in Canada. A recruiter will assist you with a digital resume and share it across via their potential employers’ database in Canada.
Apply with your spouse. Applying as a couple can boost your CRS scores significantly.
